A Very Busy Day

Hello friends! You’ll never guess what I got to do last Thursday. Let me set the scene first, because it was, in fact, a very fun day overall.  So we had planned to pack a whole lot into our Thursday evening, the to-do list was immense. Had some grocery shopping to do, had to runContinue reading “A Very Busy Day”

To-Dos

Hello friends! Let’s chat about winterizing since it’s starting to look like that may be next on my plate. I’m really not ready to see summer slowing down but that’s all part of the deal I guess, gotta explore all the changing seasons. And I do really enjoy that part of it. Fall is aContinue reading “To-Dos”

Why I Have Grey Hairs

Hello friends! So, my neighbors think I’m nuts. This is not necessarily a new development but I am reminded of it fairly often and just recently it happened again. So, my sweet Ro, a relatively steady, bombproof little mare has opinions on birds that range from “these wee things annoy me” to “this is clearlyContinue reading “Why I Have Grey Hairs”

Summer Days

Hello friends! Can you believe it’s September already! I cannot, where did the summer go? I swear it was just July but now suddenly the kiddos are back in school. Lots of things are signaling its fall and back to school season. A big one being the August 20th flip. When I moved to theContinue reading “Summer Days”

*Low Flying Airplane Noises*

Hello friends! So first of all, look at this super cool video my dad took! I’ve never been this close to an aerial applicator doing their job, it actually spooked me the first time they went past and I decided to stop and wait for the next pass so we could get a cool videoContinue reading “*Low Flying Airplane Noises*”

Odds and Ends

Hello friends! I accidentally bought more hay. I say accidentally because there was a total miscommunication, no one’s fault, but somehow I thought I had said no to buying more than my usual hay (which I usually actually barter with my uncle for, a lot of things in farm country can be favor for favorContinue reading “Odds and Ends”

Two Steps Forward…

Hello friends! Anyone else ever get to feeling, sometimes, like they are just forever reacting to things instead of actually accomplishing new tasks and making any actual progress? This has been the whole farm this summer, seems like I cannot for the life of me get ahead, I just keep reacting to issues as theyContinue reading “Two Steps Forward…”

It’s Warm

Hello friends! It’s officially that time of the year where we have to be very careful not to melt. We don’t see highs below 100 or lows below 70 for the foreseeable future. Honestly, I don’t mind it. I’d love it if it was a little easier to get outside in the mornings, work kindaContinue reading “It’s Warm”

Makin’ and Takin’ Calls

Hello friends! Well, we finally got the new Farrier out and he did a pretty good job. I was really worried because so many people in the horse world can grow callous and harsh and my girls so look forward to Farrier day that I really didn’t want to ruin that. But they needed trimsContinue reading “Makin’ and Takin’ Calls”

Just Workin’

Hello friends! We had a very magical moment on the farm recently! Junebug had a solo ride with Ro! What a wonderful moment for all involved! June was so proud of herself, as she should be, because she had to be incredibly brave and she had to remember everything she had learned. She had toContinue reading “Just Workin’”
